Using Cardiac Simulations to Compare Prototypes

Have you ever had an idea for changes to a device, or a new experimental protocol, and wanted to test it? Did you balk at doing an animal study, given the time and money required?

One excellent use of cardiac simulation is to test out new ideas and compare prototypes. It’s not usually necessary to set up a fully realistic simulation or use an animal model to find out if your intuition about an idea is right, or if making a certain change to a design has the desired effect. Using cardiac simulation with our web-based simulation manager, you can easily set up a test, start it running, and have some results when you get back from lunch (or even a coffee break, depending on the size of the simulation and your computational budget). Or you could start doing the paperwork for an animal study. Wouldn’t you rather the simulation scenario?

Of course, the initial creation of a model to match your prototype could be a bit difficult if you haven’t done it before. We can generate appropriate models and get everything set up for you.

It’s also important to recognize that simulation won’t replace an animal study for final vetting before working with human subjects; however, it can save you costly iterations with animals and leave the animal study for final validation.
